TCG and TheFrontOffice Launch
Freelancers Relief Fund: Theatre Designers
In partnership, Theatre Communications Group (TCG) and TheFrontOffice (an entertainment development company founded in 2019 by director, Wendy C. Goldberg) are announcing the Freelancers Relief Fund: Theatre Designers program. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis starting Monday, December 7th, 2020 2:00pm EST.
The current COVID-19 pandemic is threatening the theatre field’s infrastructure and placing the most vulnerable - freelancers working in the theatre field - in an increasingly dire situation. 
To combat this crisis, the Freelancer’s Relief Fund will provide a limited number of rapid response grants of $1,000 each for scenic, lighting, costume, sound and projection designers who have had theatre employment within January 2019 - March 2020. 
Online Application Forms will be available starting December 7th, 2020 2:00pm ET 
Applications accepted on a rolling basis through December 11th, 2020 5:00pm ET
